West Ham United are reportedly interested in acquiring the services of 26-year-old Leeds United forward Jack Harrison.
According to The Sun, West Ham United are keen on having Jack Harrison in their ranks ahead of next season. With Leeds United fighting for survival in the English top flight, the future of their 26-year-old forward is uncertain.
Leeds are currently 19th in the league with a game to go. They are level on points with 18th-placed Leicester City but are two points behind 17th points Everton. Winning their last fixture won’t guarantee their survival, and a few results will have to go their way for them to feature in the Premier League again next season.
With relegation the most likely outcome, the future of Harrison has become a talking point. While his contract at the club runs until the summer of 2028, the 26-year-old could push for a move away from the club if they get relegated to the EFL Championship.
The former Manchester City forward has made 39 appearances in the ongoing season while being involved in 15 goals. He has scored five goals and also has ten assists to his name. Despite his team’s struggles, the 26-year-old has surely done his bit.
His impressive performances have attracted the attention of the Hammers, who are looking to strengthen their team ahead of next season. West Ham have not been at their best in the ongoing season. And, they are all set to sell their skipper Declan Rice in the summer.
West Ham are currently 14th in the league and have just managed to secure safety in the English top flight. A squad with the quality of theirs was expected to fight for a top-six finish. However, things have not gone according to plan.
Their attack has not delivered. Despite spending a decent amount on recruiting new forwards, the Hammers could not produce the results on the pitch. David Moyes wants to bring in a few more forwards as he looks to revive his team. And West Ham have also shown interest in Harvey Barnes.
Mayes wants to acquire the services of players who can directly hit the ground running in the Premier League, and Harrison could be a great fit for the club. The relegation-battling winger has been playing in the Premier League for a while now and has been a consistent performer for Leeds over the past few seasons. It will be interesting to see if a summer move sees the light of day.
